A man from Milton Keynes has been sent to prison for four years after pleading guilty to causing Grievous Bodily Harm with intent.
Craig Glen, aged 36, from Angus Drive, Bletchley, was sentenced to four years in prison and three years on extended licence, at Huntingdon Crown Court on Friday (March 18th).
In the early hours of Monday 11 October 2010, at an address in Dodkin, Beanhill, Glen assaulted another man at the address by hitting him over the head with a vase and a glass ashtray before punching him repeatedly.
The victim was taken to Milton Keynes General Hospital where he received 22 staples and six stitches to his head and lost over one litre if blood..
Det Con Wendy Fellowes, who led the investigation said: “This was a totally unprovoked attack which came out of the blue. A group of friends, including the victim and the offender, had been at the house most of the weekend drinking when the attack took place. The victim had no chance to defend himself and was fortunate that his injuries were not far worse.”
